Vertical Metrocard Earrings
It doesn't matter if you prefer a taxi. It's inevitable. If you're in New York, you're gonna have to take the subway. And you're gonna need a metrocard to do it. That little bendy piece of plastic is like a badge of honor. You've survived falling asleep and missing your stop. Made it through some mysterious smells on crowded cars. You've even successfully avoided contact with the "Showtime" crew. It's a legitimate accomplishment only those who've lived in the city can truly understand.
Sadly, this iconic symbol of those everyday successes lives buried in your wallet. You need a way to commemorate your transportation triumphs that you can proudly show off! And if that way could be shiny with a sleek minimal design, well, all the better. "What time is it?" That's right. "It's showtime!"
These square-edged silver earrings are a vertical variation of the abstract pieces that celebrate the modern version of the subway token. They are a facing pair with clean lines that are delicate, stylish, and a little bit fun. The perfect way to wear the city's secret badge of honor.
Fabricated in solid sterling silver, each piece is marked with a "925" purity stamp to confirm the authenticity of the metal. With proper care, these high-quality pieces should last a lifetime and beyond.
Excluding posts: 1/2" h. x 5/16" w. x 1/32" d. (13 mm h. x 8 mm w. x 1 mm d.)
Each piece is stamped with the Tinker Company monogram (our T in a square) as a way to sign our work. On these pieces, look for this signature mark on the back of the earrings.

The pieces in our collections are primarily made to order. This means we create each piece specifically for you when your order is placed. We intentionally keep limited stock because when we make our jewelry we want to know that its next home will be with you, being worn and loved, not sitting in a box still waiting for its moment to shine. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks, unless otherwise noted. Another benefit to creating our pieces this way is that it allows us to work with you to customize elements of a design if necessary. Don't see the size option you need? Just contact us with any questions you have about measurements or fit before you place your order. We want you to feel confident that you're receiving the perfect item.
